Editorial Reviews for The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Yalumba
So smoky on the nose with a moderate dose of toasty oak spice layered under some leafy and bright black currant fruit.On entry this is really attractive with brilliant red and black fruits that have a slight jammy edge to them yet they remain clear and bright on the palate. This is so finely polished but still with cut and great clarity in the mouth. The knock here might be that this is a little simple but it’s so fresh and filled with everso slightly chewy fresh fruit that it really is a joy to drink. 91pts
Yum yum yum yum yum!!
The 2004 Signature was utterly captivating with its aromas of cranberry sauce and bright sour cherry with soy, green stems and black pepper. The palate was focused and concentrated, yet fresh with dark chocolate covered cherries which turned to sour berry and savory broth with salty minerals. The finish was smooth and velvety as the dark red fruits slowly faded. (94 Points) - “The Wine of the Night” in a recent blind tasting!
Deep inky purple in color. The nose has lots of dark red fruit and peat with hints of pepper and leather that leads to a palate of clean dark berry, cracked pepper and some tart cedar tannins. With air notes of semi-sweet chocolate begin to show on the nose and palate On day two more notes of pepper start to come out. This is a nice big, full bodied wine. The Cab and Shiraz really seem to blend and compliment each other.
deep currant aromas, dried fruit, little spicy on the palate, dark berries, a little bit of hot spiced dark cocoa, nice finish, would be great with food
Deep garnet in the glass with brick edges. Nose showing cola, eucalyptus and mint. Interesting palate of tobacco and a vegetal (green bean) hint with menthol and barnyard notes. Palate medium bodied with red a green bell pepper, more tobacco, spice and firm slightly grippy tannins. On Day 2 I'm still getting the green on the palate but it is finishing with a heavy dose of black olive from the cabernet which isn't my style. A much more complex wine than the Scribbler but the olive is throwing me off. Maybe it's just in a morphing stage. Maybe it's just me.
The cabernet in this wine definitely shows through. Nice aged character beginning to show. Showed spice, clove and dark fruit. There was some initial heat and some nice tannin to the wine. Very well made, nicely integrated. Definitely a wine I love to have in my cellar.
Nose is that of a big, new world style cab. Big black currant and other black fruits. On the palate, there's some vanilla up front. It has very nice deep, dark red and black fruits. Deep and rich. Well rounded feel, smooth and velvety. It finishes a bit like a nice merlot with soft sour cherry. A couple hours later it's bouquet opens further and it improves. Lush, still powerful and tasty. Decanting to some extent recommended.

Fresh vital and beautifully focused offering vibrant currant and plum fruit on a polished frame lingering easily against superfine tannins. Drink now through 2017.

Deep garnet-purple colored 2008 The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz reveals evolving notes of warm mulberries plum preserve creme de cassis and black olives with hints of sandalwood spice box and tobacco. Medium to full bodied and elegantly fruited in the mouth it's very well structured with a medium to firm level of grainy tannins and good line of acid finishing long and layered. It's just beginning to enter its drinking window and should cellar gracefully to 2021+. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

The 2006 The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz is composed of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon and 31% Shiraz. Deep garnet-purple in color it offers intense notes of blackberry preserves warm cherries black currant cordial plus an earthy / gamey undercurrent and nuances of marmite toast. The tight-knit medium to full-bodied palate is firmly structured with a high level of grainy tannins high acid and just enough savory flesh giving a long finish. Approachable now it should be best from 2012 to 2018. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
